NextLabs Enterprise Digital Rights Management solution applies data protection to all file types so organizations can share their critical information internally and throughout the extended enterprise with the proper level of security. Enterprise Digital Rights Management (EDRM) for SAP gives the same level of protection to SAP data to ensure that as data leaves the SAP application, it is continually protected.
NextLabs EDRM offers protection for any file type, including Office, CAD, source code and rich media. Files are classified, encrypted, and then policies are applied to determine access rights. Protection is automatically applied upon upload and download and then users access protected documents seamlessly through the SAP interface.
The solution for SAP also protects structured business data in transactions when it leaves PLM systems. This includes master data and transactional data that is accessed in SAP through transactions, reports, data dictionary, table browsers, smart forms and queries. The system classifies the data through a set of policies and encrypts the content as it is being downloaded and saved as a local file (in any format) or as it is sent to the SAP inbox. The controls to classify and rights protect the files are applied through a central decision point.
NextLabs has integrated Rights Management into the application layer in order to make protection automatic. SAP customers can leverage their existing classifications to facilitate implementation. Protection happens immediately when the information is uploaded to or downloaded from the application – whether on premise or in the cloud.
